1.) SPLASH! OK, so I always know that "OOPSLA" was a really goofy name, and the emphasis on object orientation was wearing a little thin, but did someone insist on a Daryl Hannah movie theme when they came up with the new name? And if so, is it too late to lobby for "Clan of the Cave Bear Conference"?
2.) Next year in Reno! I get to save on air fare! I get to see whether I can repeat my ultra-nerd cred by hanging out in a casino all week and doing only tech stuff without gambling, like I did at the last HP Universe in Las Vegas.
3.) The best quote of the conference will have people Googling for "Bjarne Stroustrup" and "Sex", which should come up with his latest bon mot, or else lead you to the most disturbing nerd slash fiction ever. Also waiting for a transcript of the Liskov talk.
